Mediocre Movie-Spinoff
" As an owner of the 75038 Jedi interceptor (which is this set's counterpart… spoiler alert, these are flown by the main characters in the first scene of Revenge Of The Sith) I found that Obi wan's Jedi interceptor was a lightweight and durable build, making it easy to pick up and handle. Its sleek design made it look more accurate than its retired and near-identical counterpart (75038). I get a small kick out of the shooting action elements mounted on the base of the spacecraft, and the bright translucent green projectiles are near impossible to lose.
As a star wars fan, I was some-what disappointed to find that Obi-wan's Jedi interceptor lacked the control panel, armrests, and the convenient (but not actually shown in the movie) lightsaber holder, present in 75038 plus the fact that R4-P17 does not go low enough down in the starship's left wing. Even as an expert builder, I found it very challenging to apply the decals straight on pieces, much less get them to be even with others (when applicable). I had to peel off and reapply some of the stickers multiple times just to get them on properly, which really extended the build time. For beginner to intermediate builders at the lower end of the recommended age range, I'd recommend having an adult's help with the stickers, especially with the ones on the flaps. The instructions weren't very clear on how to correctly apply stickers 9 and 8 either – to potentially resolve any confusions, from what I gathered, the shorter line of those y-shaped markings are intended to be on the inside, towards the cockpit.
This set is not a waste of money– if you are not a lego star wars collector, the minor overlooked details will not detriment your play experience in the least. However, if you are a lego star wars collector, this model may be a bit of a let-down, as far as accuracy. "
